    No flared arches yet has Quattro in big letters on the front grill.

    Don't really like the rear end, especially the exhaust pipes. but the figures look promising.

    A slightly wider stance would have made this car more visually appealing. Those wheels are not too exciting either. I guess the RS3 is about brutal performance under an understated and refined skin.

    You have to remember the UR Quattro of the 80's with its 5 cylinder donk was pig dog ugly at the time. The 5 cylinder engine is so iconic that I'm not surprised they tried to downplay its looks.

    Agree. Its not far off from the S3. It needs to differentiate significantly enough to wear an RS badge on the outside.

    Very true Jared I am a big fan of the UR Quattro in the 80's - blistering rally like performance while the car looked quite ordinary. I can see how this model has these historical influences.

    Anyone know if those are 20" wheels on the RS3? A bit of concavity would have been nice.

    I was about to pull the trigger on a v8 just days ago but now I'm not sure. Just wished we have more information on trim levels/pricing etc of the RS3.

    Its really hard to tell form the photos if they are 20's or not. With the release being late next year it will be awhile before we know what we are going to paying and what spec is standard. I suppose one good thing about waiting so long is it gives them a chance to rectify any gremlins ( if any ) that occur when a new car is released.
